Skip to comments.Kennedy Offered to Help Soviets Thwart U.S. Policies, KGB Papers Show

(CNSNews.com) - While Soviet troops occupied Afghanistan in 1980, Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) worked in close concert with high level Kremlin officials to alter the direction of U.S. policy, according to documents made available through a KGB defector.
Details concerning Kennedy's correspondence with KGB agents are included in the writings of the late Vasiliy Mitrokhin who defected to Britain in 1992. The Mitrokhin papers highlight a meeting that took place at the behest of Kennedy between former Sen. John Tunney (D-Calif.) and KGB agents in Moscow on March 5, 1980.
So it WAS the Cape Cod Orca...! Ha...! Gotchya..!
JFK would be sooooo proud.
So, like, tell me again why Eddy Kennedy isn't being charged with treason???
Welcome to FR, wodineoneeye. Interesting post.
And why isn't this treason?
They haven't called him "RED Ted" for all these years for nothing.
Let's see, now:
What did I miss...?
Stupid, drunken, fat, murdering Traitor. Boy, Mass sure knows how to pick senators!
Someone made fleeting reference to this on Special Report the other day, and I haven't heard anything since. They implied that Kennedy actively worked against Reagan's reelection in 1984 by offering the Soviets "talking points" on US Foreign Policy.
Serious charges against a sitting US Senator...
The really sad and disgusting thing is each newly revealed act of Dem treason I hear of, no longer surprises me. It's their modus operandi.
Kicked out of college for cheating and Big Dig influece peddling are two glaring items..
If true then he should be dangling from the end of a rope.
I have not heard a word of this even on Fox
If you want on (or off) this Catholic and Pro-Life ping list, let me know!
You forgot Arrogant and Condescending.
If the Rats get control of the Senate, what committee chairmanships will this traitor control?
I want to barf!
Note that the article is continued at the source, and should be consulted there.
This ties in with some posts here during the last week concerning Kennedy's dealings with the USSR during Reagan's presidency and on the possibility that Tunny was actually a KGB agent.
Unfortunately I don't recall the thread titles.
Well, I just did a keyword search for Tunney and turned up four more of them (not this one), but not the one I was thinking of. This obviously is a matter that deserves some study.
The sadder thing is that Kennedy is the less bad of the two senators from the state of Massachusetts!
--a post a couple of weeks ago laid out the case that there was a senator compromised and actively working as a KGB agent--and furthermore that the only likely suspect was Sen. John Tunney of California--an intimate of Teddy---
And since the MSM will not publish this treason for all to see, this should show U.S. all which side they're on. ALL of our enemies sides.
THAT is simply not TRUE!
Kennedy is an evil murdering Communist Pimp, where as
We are Not SURE that Kerry had the balls to actually kill anybody in South VietNam.
This should be a flashing red siren headline on Drudge like below.
*** SENATOR TED KENNEDY REVEALED TO BE A TRAITOR ***
(please visit our sponsors)
To which Teddy said, "Ahm ahna leckama on the neckamadint if yuh mamana ondabanahma meckato baguhmoo wackmpana the Russians."
Well, at least Kerry got a purple heart for injuring himself...
We're asleep! Our worst enemy is one of our own and we just roll over and go back to sleep.
What did he hurt, his wrist? Must have been from all that ego stroking.
Seems to me that we "conspiracy theorists" have been saying this kind of stuff since the 1960s. It's a burden being proven right all the time. Anyone who read Gary Allen's "None Dare Call it Conspiracy" wouldn't be surprised at all.
For the love of God can we please rid the country of this sorry, worthless, POS!? (Along with the other sorry, worthless, POS senator from Mass.)
and why were'nt these traitors jailed and/or executed for their treason????
This is a very good read on the topic:
"Sen. Kennedy played a major role during the 1970s in Grafting the restrictions that made it so difficult for the FBI and CIA to do the job of protecting the American people. One of the most pernicious restrictions was the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) passed in 1978. President Franklin Roosevelt, in 1940, had ordered the FBI to wiretap Nazis and Communists because they were operating in the United States on behalf of hostile foreign powers. Every President after him used the inherent power of the President to order wiretapping for national security purposes.
Kennedy told the Senate Intelligence Committee in 1976 that "For the last five years, I and others in the Senate have labored unsuccessfully to place some meaningful statutory restrictions on the so-called inherent power of the Executive to engage in surveillance." When Congress discussed legislation to require a court warrant to wiretap enemy agents and terrorists, Kennedy and the ACLU began a campaign to raise the barriers as high as possible. Kennedy introduced the concept in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Bill that required evidence that someone was providing classified information to a foreign intelligence service. Someone who "only" had a clandestine relationship with a foreign intelligence officer and carried out covert influence operations for a foreign power could not be wiretapped. When we see the KGB reports we can understand why Kennedy would want this provision in the law. Kennedy was not a KGB agent. He also was not "a useful idiot" who was used by the KGB without understanding what he was doing. Kennedy was a collaborationist. He aided the KGB for his own political purposes."

Probably - but what does that have to do with giving Kennedy a pass. Put it into a few sentences. Why the pass....

You might say that.
You write: "I have not heard a word of this even on Fox"
there is a formula =
if they hear from 40 to 45 people on a story, they will cover it. CAUTION: do not mass email - they wont look at it email singly. I've added e.d. hills new email add. - she's afraid of no one and now has her own show... "Let's roll"

And here, for perusing, is e. d. s own web site-
In addition to treason,I believe U. S. law prohibits a member of Congress personally to negotiate with a foreign government in such a manner. However, this would not be the only law that does not apply to left wingers.
It also was illegal for Jimmy, the Inept, to negotiate on his personal initiative an agreement with the dictator of North Korea. That agreement should have been ignored by Clinton, but possibly he was distracted by that blue dress.
